Kulfan talks with a determined Evgeny Svechnikov

The Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan spoke with Evgeny Svechnikov at this week’s Power Edge Pro camp in Plymouth. Just as Svechnikov told The Athletic’s Max Bultman that he’s attempting to push the reset button after suffering a season-ending ACL injury last season, Svechnikov tells Kulfan that he’s going to do his best to make a name for himself this fall:

“Every year you would have asked me since I was 19 it’s been a big year,” said Svechnikov this week, after completing a workout at the Power Edge Pro Camp at USA Hockey Arena. “This year is no different. But especially coming back from an injury.”

It’s coming back from that injury, having gone through the long, tedious rehabilitation, that’s pushing and motivating Svechnikov.

Hearing the doubters say that maybe Svechnkov will not be able to come all the way back, maybe will not ever be the same player again – that’s what stirring him.

“I just want to go out there and show my name,” Svechnikov said. “I’m Evgeny Svechnikov, I was drafted for a reason and I’m here for a reason. I want to be part of the future, and I want to do that for myself and the fans and for everybody.

“I’m looking forward to doing it.”

Kulfan continues

One thought on “Kulfan talks with a determined Evgeny Svechnikov”

  1. He will have to improve quite a bit or back to Putin Hockey.

    Any bets he gets hurt again?

    Good Luck Evegny!!!
